Irrigation Repairs and Maintenance Project Begin

Maintenance and installation are the primary objectives for Central’s irrigation and maintenance divisions during October through March.  Repairs to banks, turn out structures, pump stations and other facilities make up much of the work during the offseason.

Pipeline installations and bridge replacements also take place during the fall since these jobs can’t be easily done when there is water flowing through the system.  These projects are needed to help maintain the reliability of the canal system.
